2017 Honda Ridgeline: the new benchmark for mid-size pickups

Published on October 31 2016

There was a time when not much was happening in the midsize pickup segment. Then, all of sudden new models were introduced, culminating with the all-new 2017 Honda Ridgeline which was introduced at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. In a now crowded segment, the 2017 Ridgeline stands out by offering the world’s first Truck Bed Audio System, a 400 watt in-bed power outlet, best-in-class payload capacity, a versatile cabin and a host of safety features.

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline feels bigger than it actually is

Offered starting at $36,590, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline is a mid-size pickup truck that feels bigger in every way, from its capacity to its engine to its versatility.

“We’ve advanced the best and most beloved elements of the original Ridgeline and combined them with an outstanding new platform and the most advanced technology to create new value in the midsize pickup segment,” said Jean Marc Leclerc, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Honda Canada Inc. “The result is an amazingly versatile Honda truck with uncompromised capability.”

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that delivers 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. This allows the Ridgeline to offer 713 kilos of payload capacity (varies depending on the trim) and a towing capacity that tops out at 5,000 pounds.

That said, the 2017 Ridgeline also offers class-leading fuel economy with an average combined fuel economy rating of 11.3 liters per 100 kilometers.

A flexible and comfortable interior for the 2017 Honda Ridgeline

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline offers its owners the best of both worlds. You get the payload and towing capacities of a pickup without having to suffer too much in the fuel economy and performance departments.

The same can be said inside the Ridgeline where a host of advanced features make the Honda mid-size pickup feel just like a normal vehicle. Owners get Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, an available navigation system, tri-zone climate controls, LED exterior and interior lighting, push-button start, and a sliding rear window. As stated above, an available in-bed integrated audio system will make you the life of the party wherever you go.

And then there are the features that no other mid-size pickup apart from the 2017 Honda Ridgeline can offer. These include a front wiper de-icer, heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers and LED turn signal integrated into the mirror.

On the road, what is most surprising is how the 2017 Honda Ridgeline drives. Ultimately, the pick-up truck, despite being more than capable, drives like a mid-size sedan with all the comfort and refinement you could ever want.
